11 Chic iPad Cases

by Grace Bonney

I was in a meeting last week with someone who had the chicest iPad case I’ve ever seen. I think just having an iPad to whip out for presentations is pretty great, but when the envelope-style purse she was holding turned out to actually be a tablet cover, I immediately asked where she found it. Sadly it turned out to be a few brackets above my price range, but that didn’t stop me. I decided to spend some time online looking at cute cases that wouldn’t set me back a month’s rent. While a good leather case can definitely be worth investing in (I’ve included a few like that in this roundup) I always think it’s nice to have an option around $20 that you can pal around with during the day and not be terrified to scuff. I’ve included the original inspiration style below too (hint: it’s the one that looks like an envelope) just in case anyone is lucky enough to have that in their price range. If it’s not in your range, don’t worry- that super cute polka-dot style is only $26! xo, grace
